‘Not ready to announce anything officially’
Yesterday, artist and designer Joe Madureira claimed that Darksiders wasn’t dead, and that its new publisher had been in the process of working on the third game. Nordic Games has since responded to the statement, nothing, “With regards to Darksiders 3: of course we’ve always been busy in the background, talking to a lot of former team members about a continuation of the series, but we are not ready to announce anything officially. Joe Madureira is spot on in saying that DS is not dead and we are committed, though.”
They also elaborate a bit more, stating, ““Before we can say something about the ‘how’ and ‘when’ of publishing/financing the sequel is concerned, we are still busy in properly figuring out the ‘who’ part of this large-scale project. All I can say is that we can and will not settle for second-best solutions in the case of Darksiders.”
So yeah, if they can actually get this project off the ground I’m beyond excited. I think the Darksiders games have been getting better with each iteration, and I want to see what a third game would end up like.
